Summer, sun, beach & sea

Ameland boasts extensive and beautiful beaches that stretch for 27 kilometres along the North Sea coast. The beaches are well-kept and clean and offer a variety of activities - not only in summer.

Here you can take leisurely walks, sunbathe, build sandcastles, play beach volleyball, fly kites or simply enjoy the view of the sea. Of course, a dip in the refreshing water is a must!

At some sections of the beach, there are also lifeguards who provide information about the marine world and the regional flora and fauna - a true paradise for nature lovers.

The North Sea

The North Sea surrounds the north side of Ameland. Its water is refreshing and clear and offers numerous recreational opportunities such as swimming, surfing and sailing. Although it can be a little chilly at times, many people find the sea pleasant to swim in, especially in the warmer summer months. The North Sea also plays an essential role in the island's ecosystem and contributes to biodiversity.

Hikes through the mud

Ameland's south side borders the Wadden Sea, a unique tidal area known for its mudflats and rich biodiversity. At low tide, large parts of the Wadden Sea fall dry, making it possible to walk on the mudflats and explore the special nature. Mudflat walking is a popular activity on Ameland, and guided excursions are offered that allow visitors to safely explore the Wadden Sea.
